Big bass for your Wrangler

The JL Audio Stealthbox® custom-fit subwoofer delivers incredible bass in a package that takes up minimal space and blends in with your vehicle's interior. JL Audio designs Stealthboxes to fit in specific vehicles, then loads them with appropriate subwoofers for optimal performance. Pair the system with an appropriate amp and wiring for stellar concealed bass.

Perfect sound to go with the perfect fit

JL Audio puts months of research and design into each Stealthbox® custom-fit subwoofer to ensure not only that it fits, but that it sounds better than any other custom enclosed system. First, JL Audio determines the ideal shape and mounting location for each enclosure, so that it looks like an original part of the vehicle it's designed for. Next, they mount each high-performance subwoofer so it delivers amazing firepower from within its unique enclosure, without sacrificing clarity or musical depth.

The fiberglass enclosure offers superior rigidity while allowing more interior volume, so the sub can turn out louder, deeper bass. JL Audio craftsmen then laminate, grind, join, and finish each Stealthbox® by hand. The end result: full-bodied, distortion-free bass from an impressively stealthy enclosure.

Enjoy enhanced, custom-fit sound

This Stealthbox® enclosure fits in your 2007-up Jeep Wrangler. It installs on the cargo-area floor, raising the floor about five inches. Installed correctly, the enclosure can be easily removed from your Jeep if you need the space or anticipate some serious dirt and mud. This Stealthbox® includes one 10" 2-ohm W1v3 subwoofer from JL Audio. Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector, or calling an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to verify fit information.

JL Audio has rated the difficulty of this Stealthbox® installation as moderate. You should be able to install this enclosure if you have experience with car audio but some vehicles may require modifications.

Product Research

Features

Overview: JL Audio's Stealthbox subwoofer systems are designed to hide away in a specific vehicle. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Construction: Stealthboxes are hand-crafted from fiberglass and/or Advanced Molded Composite (AMC) materials. Fiberglass delivers a level of enclosure rigidity and dimensional stability not possible with other enclosure materials, allowing wall thickness to be reduced compared to a typical wood enclosure. This gives you more interior box volume for a given external volume. Fiberglass and AMC materials are very strong and can be molded into very complex shapes; giving JL Audio the ability to design your Stealthbox to fit perfectly into tight spots and minimize intrusion into your vehicle's useful space. Each Stealthbox is laminated, ground, joined, and finished by hand in the USA. Proprietary techniques and materials developed by JL Audio through years of fiberglass manufacturing experience ensure consistent quality and performance.

Woofer: One 10" JL Audio 10W1v3-2, 2-ohm subwoofer is loaded in this enclosure.

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the W1v3-2 motor remains linear over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable, fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Floating Cone Attachment Method (FCAM): JL Audio's patented FCAM technology is an innovative method of bonding the surround/cone assembly to the voice coil/spider assembly. This assembly technique ensures proper surround geometry in the assembled speaker for better excursion control and dynamic voice coil alignment.
  • Vented Reinforcement Collar: The Vented Reinforcement Collar (VRC) is a composite structure that addresses two issues related to reliability:
    • Stress Relief: By reinforcing the critical junction between the cone, voice coil and spider, the VRC reduces failures due to glue breakdown or material weakness. It does this by increasing adhesive contact area and providing stress relief to the spider material at excursion extremes.
    • Air Flow: The VRC also features slots that facilitate air flow directly onto the voice coil windings, thus reducing thermal compression effects and enhancing reliability.
  • Insert Molded Suspension/Coil/Terminal Sub-Assembly: The W1v3-2 features a unique spider, coil and terminal subassembly, assembled prior to installation in the speaker frame for optimum alignment and glue-joint integrity. This type of assembly ensures precise lead wire length, lead wire entry and exit angles, and coil/spider alignment.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling System: The elevated frame design of the W1v3-2 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top-plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.

Q
Can this come with black carpet to match my factory interior?
[ Allen  Nov 09, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
It matches my 2015 Jeep JK Wrangler with black interior very well. Only real difference is my current interior has been faded from the sun.
[ Kevin  Nov 10, 2018 ]
A
It comes in 2 colors only.
[ Kevin  Nov 09, 2018 ]
A
Yes, the black is a very close (not exact) match to the factory carpet.
[ John  Nov 09, 2018 ]
Q
Will 300W RMS be enough to feel a clean solid thump on my chest? Thanks.
[ Nick  May 30, 2018 ]

A
With the top up, absolutely.
[ ERIC  Jun 08, 2018 ]
A
I am running 500w RMS and it's pretty solid. Check the specs to make sure that 300w falls within their operating power recommendations.

Q
Is this a noticeable upgrade from the alpine sub? 2016 JK.
[ Steve  May 19, 2018 ]
6 answers
A
Yes it is noticeable as a vehicle occupant. Externally the difference won't be much as the sounds is directed internally. Overall wattage is higher output as well. Easy install with minimal loss of storage.
[ KARL  May 20, 2018 ]

I do not have any reference to the Alpine sub, but this unit puts out a tremendous amount of bass, if driven by a suitable amplifier (which the good folks at Crutchfield spec'd out for me). Not sure if the factory Alpine amp has enough power to drive the JL Audio Stealthbox. This is a powerful beast. The top of the Stealthbox looks and blends in perfectly with the factory interior but the caveat is it is only made from expanded foam and the first time you kneel on it on the center of one side,the foam will crack rendering a very flexible top surface. I replaced all the foam with plywood (covered in the same material as the Stealthbox) and now it's virtually indestructible as well as looks and sounds fantastic. In my opinion it should've come from the factory like that, but to be fair would've added a fair bit to the price, weight and shipping cost. Maybe if they offered the plywood top as an upgrade/option would make more sense.
[ John  May 19, 2018 ]

I don't have any experience with the Alpine sub. I installed this unit with a Kenwood 5 channel amp in a 2011 JK. I wanted a sub and a place to mount an amp, under the seat of a JK is not a good choice. This gives you easy install and easy access. I've had it for 7 months now and am still very happy with the purchase.
[ John  May 19, 2018 ]
A
It's a pretty noticeable upgrade, especially if you get new speakers up front too. Louder and better quality.
[ Kassidy  May 19, 2018 ]
A
I didn't have the alpine audio system. But yes I have heard them and I believe it good upgrade in sound.
[ Kevin  May 19, 2018 ]
A
Hell to the yes! Night and day... wait till you get a look at the factory amp, it's a joke. I replaced every speaker and run a couple amps (one for sound bar/dash and one pushing the sub). If you don't do that you'll still have a major bass improvement but doing all of them is worth the struggle that it requires to replace the dash speakers. Also, this box is so crisp and clean, the fit and finish is flawless. There is a perfect spot to mount the amp, wiring is so neat. It's one of those details that will continue to amaze you and impress everyone who notices.

Q
I have a 2017 jk Sahara. Will this sub connect to my factory stereo?

You can also contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

I don't believe the factory head units have the recommended power output for the subwoofer. I still have my factory unit in the dash (with CD player, XM / Sirus Radio and Bluetooth connectivity for my iPhone), but ran a 5 channel amp that I purchased here on Crutchfield to power the sub and add some punch to my entire system. The 4 channels run 100 watts to the front and rear, left and right speakers each; and the 5th channel is a dedicated subwoofer channel with 600 watts of power going to the JL audio box. I wouldn't recommend just running the sub from the head unit. The amp, speaker wires and power kit, together, cost me around $350 during one of the sales and it was definitely a great investment for a solid sound upgrade.

Q
Would a 15 fit in here or just a 12?
[ Chloe  Dec 26, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Just the shallow 10s
[ MICHAEL J  Dec 27, 2016 ]
A
Even if you found a 15" sub that worked in the volume of that box, I don't see anyway you would be able to just open up the hole more. Espically since the box has all sorts of curves and contours, I don't know how well any other sub would even drop in without banging into various edges.
[ STEVE  Dec 26, 2016 ]
Q
What amplifier should I use for this sub?
[ James  Sep 16, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best amp for your subs I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the amp models and help you make the best choice for your system.
[ Kenny  Sep 16, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
What size is the amp tray?
[ Blake  Feb 18, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Thanks for the heads up, Steve! JL Audio makes and ships the Stealthbox enclosures directly from their warehouses so our product researchers aren't able to measure the amp tray dimensions on their own and JL Audio doesn't include that information in the specs or owner's manual. That said, we verified that Steve purchased this same model from us and thus would have hands-on access to the amp tray; so the dimensions he listed in his response (8.25" x 12.25") should be accurate. You can also try contacting JL Audio's Support at 954-624-0113 for more information. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159

8.25" x 12.25" perfect fit for my alpine pdx-v9.
